There's a thread for discussing the trilogy here. I'm a big fan of both as well.

I am a Lord of The Rings fanatic!! I liked all of the books-including all others having to do with middle earth, but I watch the extended versions of the movies all the time!! I have got mostly everyline memorized by now!!

love the sil, love the lays, love LotR, and dislike terribly The Hobbit. What can I say? I'm picky, but Tolkien is a genius.

I LOVE LOTR!! I only learned about Narnia through a biography of Tolkien that I wrote. Once I learned that it was coming out I went and got all seven books and read the first two. But I probably could not pick between Tolkien and Lewis, either. Tolkien won my heart but I am feeling Narnia pushing its way in. ~Bree~

Im a very big fan of the trilogy. I like how Tolkien showed the themes Coming of Age and Good vs. Evil in the books. and the movies were just really awesome !! very good cast with Ian mcKellan, elijah wood, viggo mortensen, orlando cloom ;D , etc. They portrayed their characters really well !

I adore LOTR and The Hobbit. I don't think I could pick between Tolkien and Lewis though. Both are excellent authors and I enjoy reading and rereading their works.
I've read the Hobbit probably about 7 times and LOTR triology about 3 times.

I didn't like the style it was written in. Maybe I should give it another chance, but the first time I read it, it didn't really hold my interest and seemed very simple and flat.
